, washington is none too happy about being left out of the loop as the fbi investigates the general petraeus sex scandal. >> it's rather shocking to find out candidly that we weren't briefed. >> it would have been nice to know before we saw it on tv. >> the president was certainly surprised when he was informed about the situation regarding general petraeus on thursday. >> meanwhile, the top general in afghanistan allegedly caught red-handed exchanging flirtatious e-mails of his own with jill kelley. plus the debut of my new cnn colleague, the culinary superstar who will dine on anything, anthony bowurdane is here. joining me is barbara starr and intelligence correspondent, suzanne kelly. welcome back to you both. every night i say right off the top, can any of us get our heads round this and how much more ridiculous can it get, and lo and behold, it gets more ridiculous. barbara starr, let's try and get to what we believe to be the facts behind all the kind of lurid, titillating headlines. a second general today, petraeus' successor in afghanistan, general john allen, a marine corps four st
pointed questions about the fbi's investigation into general david petraeus's extramarital affair. they want to know why they weren't told and if national security was breached. peter king talked with cnn's candy crowley today. >> it seems it's been going on several months and it appears they're saying the fbi didn't realize until election day. that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> petraeus resigned from his post at cia director friday and admitted he had an affair. sources said the affair was with his biographer paula broadwell. >>> for the first time in four years an nfl game ended in a tie. the san francisco 49ers and stv louis rams unable to convert field goals to win the game. final score between the nfc west rivals, 24-24. the last tie was november 16, 2008, between the philadelphia eagles and the cincinnati bengals. >>> those are your headlines this hour. i'm don lemon. keeping you informed. cnn, the most trusted name in news. see you at 10:00 p.m. eastern. >>> our special guest, tyler perry. you're a very honest, open book. even if you don't want t
